It's great to read such succinct political discourse from a graduate of the Keith Olberrman school of poly-sci. Wake up asshole, the election's over and it's time to put your money where your mouth is. You think a 5% margin of victory is a landslide, I got news for you, virtually half of this country still sees things differently than you do. So, while you're riding the high tide of contentment on your bandwagon, you might want to start thinking about shit like how the media. who made your candidate, is no longer your pal, but your adversary.

Nothing makes a better story than knocking a powerful person from their high horse and reaping the reward of redeeming it's own victim. It's how the media plays ball, isn't it? Count on it. Beware brother beware.

I for one am extremely proud that our country had the balls to elect a black man president. I'm even ready willing and able to give him a fair shot at his duties. (Which by the way, was never an option for you hating motherfuckers that never, ever gave Bush the same courtesy. Think about it. Did you?)

So instead of being an Olberrman blowjob queen, and continuing to live in George Bush's world, you might want to just once think about the very, very real perils it represents to your future. Remember, on January 20th 2009, your job as presidential apologist officially begins. Hope you hold up well to the unwarranted hatred that will surely come your way.

Peace, out.

With all due apologies to Purple Gel, who I don't think meant this thread to be part of an ongoing pissing contest.

Would it be out of order to suggest a sweepstake on 1) how long before he is assasinated, and 2) where the assasin comes from.

I don't think he'll make the county line.

Unfortunately

apologies, lot of people talking that way here.

I would hate to see anything happen to the man. I believe that he will be a great force for positive change in the world., and a great President. I hope he can liberate the country from the mess it is currently in. I've been in a seminar for the past 3 days with some john of God brothers talking about hospitality and vision. That man has the vision

>>>you hating motherfuckers that never, ever gave Bush the same courtesy.>>>

Yes courtesy is ironic.

Bush took so many vacations in his first year, so we just had to wonder why Cheney needed him at all. Well taking the heat was the best reason so Cheney could hide out in some locked cave.

Obama won by a Reagan landslide. Now that's a mandate for change. Hopefully school lunches programs across the land will NOT count ketchup as a vegetable and the military will be happy with 10,000 nuclear warheads and the biggest military to shame the face of the earth.

The very real perils come from the liars and thieves who say they want small government but really want to intrude on personal privacy to the last detail and spend like there's no tomorrow.

Unfortunately here on the day after it seems like the right wing will continue to lie and probably do everything in their power to stop success. Carter made too many compromises to the Right and they buried him, though he still has the last laugh.

Ketchup, not a vegetable. Check. Done deal.

Other than the continued hate mongering, might you have an additional improvement to offer, now that we've unilaterally agreed on the Ketchup being a condiment issue? Should I phone UNICEF?

Free thinking liberals, always taking the lead with new unorthodox approaches to societies ills.

Note: You've only got a couple more months of hatred left until somebody comes up with some ideas about how to fix this mess. That international ketchup issue was a good start.

Man that was f-u-n-n-y.

Nice to hear you use the term 'asshole' to make your point.

Well played, sir. A fine example of the kind of discourse you must resort to, and further proof that keeps intelligent people of conservative views, like Mandojammer from posting on this forum.

I'm sorry you're so angry and feel the need to act like a 5-year old who just lost the game and wants to take his ball home in protest. It guess it's difficult to deal with disappointment like an adult.

Peace out, indeed.

Good answer. Always adept at shooting the messenger, no positive remarks. The next four years should be boring for those of your ilk, with nothing to complain about. And nothing to offer.

Re Bush, and not to forgive folks, but there was a strong sense that his first term was illegitimate due to Florida and the whole debacle around the same (and this country really does need to get its act together re voting in elections ). However, when 9/11 came and he gave his speech at the site of the towers and at the National Cathredal in DC I think most gave him the benefit of the doubt and really wanted him to suceeed (I know I did). I don't think anyone truly ever wants to see the President fail - outside of real partisan politicians. However, what was asked of us as a nation after 9/11, when Bush had a chance to unite not only us, but the international community supporting us? Keep shopping and don't give up your SUV. There was no sense we as a nation were in this together that I ever perceived coming from his administration and the rush to war with a country that appeared to have nothing directly to do with 9/11 but did play out the scenarios created by folks such as Wolfowitz and Cheney years before 9/11 did not help foster support or legitimacy. Then we see the incredible war profiteering, the actions of the Justice Dept., war torture memo and actions at Abu Gharib and Guatanamo, the Plame affair, the efforts to belittle the military service of Kerry (who I'm no fan of) by a rich boy draft dodger, Cheney and Rove's contempt for Congress and the rule of law, etc (the list goes on and on and on), it makes it hard to give W much benefit of the doubt -especially when there has been a systemic lack of competence under his administration. Surely not every incident is his fault, but these things happened on his watch and we always lay blame where the buck stops. Wasn't yesterday more of a national referendum on George than it was an endorsement of Obama?

...not my point. It takes little political expertise, especially in retrospect to be critical of any administration, and the tearing down of George Bush is no exception. Much of it he is deserving of. The point is that constant and unrelenting criticism has become to many their only platform. Nothing from Mr. Grendel but venom, not one iota of positive reinforcement, or even reference to the ideologies that might serve us better. Rather, blaming our (his) apparent predicament time and time again on what is now, the past.

So now, we're in essentially a leaderless vacuum for the next couple of months. What, dear haters of Bush, are your political plans that will turn around the mess that we're in? Blame game over, ball's in your court.

Please give me an answer. You know, like "by putting a windfall tax on oil, we can__________." Or here's an easy one, it was part of the campaign; "by taxing the top 5% of the wealthiest Americans we will be able to___________."

Come on, folks have been absolutely stunning at critical analysis of the system, how 'bout some positive vibes here.
